Childrens hospital – JR Memorial golf tournament

We had a great tournament this year organized by Shealyn Gabel of Quadra Chemicals. Thank-you Shealyn and her helpers!

This golf tournament held in honor of John Riddel is a tradition carried on from the former BCPMA and is held with the PAC – Packaging group.,

In 2017 we were, once again, able to raise $2,300 in funds for the Childrens hospital – helping sick children in BC.

It was a honour to hand a check to these people doing amazing work for our sick children in BC.

We look forward to another great time next  June 2018
